Concerning Frank & Jesse…this issue features the following item—front page, third column—treating the events following the September 7, bank robbery attempt in Northfield, Mn, by the famed outlaws.

“MINNESOTA/ VIGOROUS PURSUIT OF THE NORTHFIELD BANK ROBBERS—ON THE TRACK OF THE MISSOURI GANG.

St. Paul, Sept. 10.—The latest information from the pursuit of the Northfield robbers is that they have been run out of the woods at Lake Elsylan, and across the bridge toward Waterville. Squads of men sent in various directions headed them off. A special train leaves here this evening on the St. Paul and Sioux City railroad, carrying the Chief of Police and twenty five or thirty picked men. One hundred men are surrounding the country in which the robbers are, and it does not seem possible for them to escape.

Hazen, a detective in the employ of the American express company, sent here from Cincinnati, identifies two of the dead by photographs as Charley Pitts and B8ill Chadwick. He says also that the light haired man wounded at Northfield is undoubtedly Frank James. There is no mistake about this being the famous gang operating in Missouri, and if any are lucky enough to escape they will hereafter give Minnesota a wide berth.”

As all the word knows, the Younger brothers—Cole, Jim & Bob—were captured in the wake of the Northfield Raid, while Jesse and Frank escaped to continue their depredations until 1882, when Jesse was shot by Bob Ford (for the reward offered by the Governor of Missouri). Frank James turned himself in, to stand trial, but was never convicted. Bob Younger died while serving a life sentence in Minnesota’s Stillwater Prison; Jim and Cole were paroled and Cole was eventually pardoned in 1903. Frank James died in 1912, Cole Younger in 1916.

Fascinating piece of James Gang “Outlaw” Americana. In protective sleeve w/ white card backing.  [jp][ph:L]
